Jesus said “Come to me all you who are thirsty, come and drink! Streams of living water will flow from within all who believe in me.”

John 7:38 NIV

Gracious God, we come to You; we calm our minds and still our bodies, slow our breathing and settle into this time of reflection with You, living, loving God. We come, with all that is on our hearts and minds, knowing that we are perfectly loved and accepted by You just as we are. Gracious God, we praise you….

As the deer pants for water,
so I long for you O God….
I will meditate upon your kindness…
For by day
the Lord pours out
his steadfast love…
Through the night
I pray to the God
who gives me life.
He is my help!
He is my God!

Extracts from Psalm 42 TLB

Gracious God, thank you that we can come and bathe under the cascade of the pure, renewing, refreshing waters of Jesus, through the power of Your Holy Spirit.  Thank you that You satisfy our deepest thirst and longings.
Draw us closer to You as we drink deeply from the waterfall of Your everlasting love, strength and grace in Jesus. Amen.
